On a recent trip to Texas Kevin Holm, Story City, was successful in hunting down a wild boar. The rifle he used belonged to his late grandfather Helge Johnson of Story City. The 111-year-old 30/40 caliber rifle was made by Springfield Armory and carried a model number of 1896. The guides for the trip that accompanied Kevin were his father-in-law Jim Donald, formerly of Story City, and Bill Grove, formerly of Webster City.
